Cork-based Irish Paralympic athlete, Orla Barry was on hand to celebrate the naming of Moran & Bewley's Hotel Group as the 'Official Hotel Partner' for Paralympics Ireland.
The partnership sees Moran & Bewley's Hotel Group renewing its support for Paralympics Ireland through the extensive provision of accommodation, meeting and event facilities. The group first announced their original involvement in 2011 and was a proud partner of the 2012 Irish Paralympic Team which delivered an impressive haul of 16 medals in London.
"I'm honoured to become an ambassador for Moran & Bewleys Hotels' involvement with Irish Paralympic sport. I'm a Cork-based athlete, so it's especially fitting to kick off the partnership again in the Silver Springs." said Orla.
Moran & Bewley's played a key role in the preparations of Irish Paralympic athletes in the lead up to the Games and also hosted a number of showpiece events. With Irish Paralympic athletes now aiming for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, this support will again prove vital.
"We were thrilled to be involved with the incredible Irish Paralympic success at London 2012 and are delighted to help Paralympics Ireland prepare for the challenge of Rio 2016. The performances of Irish Paralympic athletes like Orla Barry are hugely inspiring and we will be supporting them every step of the way," said Adrian Sherry, group marketing manager for Moran & Bewley's Hotels.
